The Boulder Breaker was the Weapon wielded by the Goron Champion, Daruk, until his defeat by Fireblight Ganon.[1] It is considered part of the Goron Gear equipment archetype.[4] It is mentioned that Daruk made swinging this Weapon around look easy, while others who used it would need a large amount of strength.[1] According to Bludo, Daruk used the Boulder Breaker to carve the valley at Gortram Cliff in one night.[5] He did so to make it easier for the Gorons to reach their Rock Roast.[6] In addition, there is a rumor that Daruk used to use it to fan himself.[7]

After appeasing the Divine Beast Vah Rudania, Bludo will allow Link to take the Boulder Breaker from a Treasure Chest in his House as a reward.[8][9] Despite Bludo describing the Boulder Breaker as a sharp Weapon, it does not act as such and cannot cut Grass or Trees.

The Boulder Breaker is the strongest variant of the Cobble Crusher. Just like the other Goron crushers, it is a two-handed Weapon that can be used for both mining and combat. It also has a hidden property which causes their damage output to be doubled when used on the Ore Deposit atop a Stone Talus. It is capable of immediately destroying Stone Pebblits.

If Link asks Bludo about the Boulder Breaker, he tells him to go to the Goron blacksmith, Rohan, if he ever loses it.[10] If Link ever misplaces or breaks the Boulder Breaker, Rohan will offer to craft him a new one in exchange for a Cobble Crusher, five pieces of Flint, and a Diamond.[11]

The Boulder Breaker is made of metal, and it will therefore conduct Electricity and attract Lightning if it is equipped during a Thunderstorm. However, it is unable to burn when exposed to Fire or a Scorching Climate. It sinks if dropped in Water, but it can be picked up and manipulated using the Magnesis Rune.
